Additional adoption info

Adoptions are simple, we match the dog to the family and the family to the dog. Our Adoption process contains the following steps:
1. Complete our adoption application.
2. WGSPR will review your application and follow up with you via email or phone.
3. WGSPR will conduct a veterinary reference check and background check.
4. A WGSPR volunteer will contact you to set up a home visit.
5. WGSPR will determine and notify you if you are approved. If you are not approved, we will provide you with the reason we are not willing to allow you to adopt from us.
6. WGSPR will put you in contact with the foster family to further discuss the GSP that you are interested in.
If you, as the applicant would like to continue in the adoption process, a Meet and Greet is set up with the foster family. WGSPR does require you, as the potential adopter, to travel to the foster home for the meet and greet.
7. WGSPR foster families have the FINAL decision on the family that will adopt the GSP rescue.
NOTE: Considerations include application, home visit, meet and greet and overall best fit and safety considerations for the GSP rescue.
WGSPR matches you with the perfect GSP we have in rescue as your lifelong companion.
NOTE: The length of time the adoption approval process can vary and is dependent on the schedules and availability of our volunteers and the applicant(s). We ask that you please be patient through this process.

1. WGSPR follows National GSP Breed Rescue Protocols.
2. WGSPR does not hold dogs. If you are interested in a particular GSP, you should arrange to meet that dog as soon as possible following approval.
3. WGSPR is unable to ship our GSPs to other states.
4. WGSPR cannot promise any of our GSPs are hunters.

About Wisconsin German Shorthaired Pointer Rescue

Wisconsin German Shorthaired Pointer Rescue (WGSPR) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization covering the state of Wisconsin. We save GSPs from shelters, humane societies, and owner surrenders. Our rescued dogs are placed into foster homes to be loved, nurtured, trained and in some cases nursed back to health while we find the perfect permanent home and loving family for them.

The mission of WGSPR is to provide the general public with knowledge of our breed, offer fully vetted, rescued, purebred GSPs for adoption, with a life-time follow-up and return policy for all of our adopted GSPs.

Adopt a Pet is the easiest way for you to search for a new pet in Cottage Grove, WI.

Support adoption and rescue. Why go to a dog breeder, cat breeder or pet store to buy a dog or buy a cat when you can adopt?

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life.

What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?

When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.

So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
